Location(s): Edinburgh

Genre(s): Cosy Mystery

Era(s): contemporary

A woman’s fatal fall at a local beauty spot raises the suspicions of Edinburgh police

Sarah Cartwright is on her daily jog when she falls from the iconic rocks of Salisbury Crags.

When DI Russell McCord arrives at the scene, the victim’s distraught husband says he saw her being pushed.

A stickler for procedure, and suspecting it was murder, McCord tries to follow the evidence: a recent lottery win and a heavy dose of jealousy appear high on the list of motives.

Journalist Amy Thornton has other ideas. On a charm offensive, she wins the trust of people close to the victim, including her secret lover.

But with her amateur findings dismissed as usual, yet frustrated that McCord is acting the perfect gentleman, Amy will have to strike lucky to prove her case.
